Seduction of the Indifferent

You may or may not have noticed a new blog on the blogroll. Oh, who am I kidding? Until the damn big Superman graphic is gone, nobody's scrolling that far down. So I thought I'd tell you about the new link. It's Seduction of the Indifferent, a new blog from Friend of Listen To Us, Scott M. He mostly deals in older comics, but has a keen eye for quality and recently bought a bunch of new things recommended by Alex and I. So keep a look out, folks, it should be good.


Ian Brill reminds us that if Mike Allred draws a real person in a corporate comic, legal pisses their pants.

DC reminds us that super-"realistic" Plastic Man is dumb as poop.

They also remind us that Japanese perverts aren't the only people in the world who wack off to statues, sadly.

Now you remember.

Ware Week Pt. 1

OK, so we're probably not going to have a Ware Week. BUT yesterday the New York Times published their first installment of Chris Ware's new work for them. It is, of course, fucking great. I don't know anyone who gets the possibilities inherent in the medium of comics more instinctively than does the good Mr. Ware. Every page has something exciting on it that just makes me be filled with joy. People who don't get Ware are FIWOTTs automatically, and should shut the hell up and enjoy their Garfield Meets the JSA comics.

Ware Week will end this coming Sunday when I (and invisible co-blogger Brant) will attend a master class he's teaching. Expect us to come back EVEN MORE BRILLIANT THAN BEFORE. You will all be aroused.
